Justin Fantl photographed Dior’s Spring-Summer 2018 collection of handbags for Goop. The new collection was designed with a focus on feminism in art, celebrating female artists while calling attention
to their absence in the art world.
Justin Fantl captured these otherworldly triptychs that span from India to California to Oregon. Justin says, “Part of the inspiration came from looking at archival landscape imagery from the Library of Congress. There are many diptychs which I find interesting. The main impetus to work on this project came from a dissatisfaction I had with looking at landscapes in a singular frame. I felt like the single frame didn’t always feel like it did while photographing in that space. Somehow the triptych (for me) gives a more accurate view/feel of looking into a landscape. This is especially true when printed large – there really is a sense that one is standing within the landscape. They are three individual frames, not one split up.” Keep an eye out for more! This project is ongoing….
